Dark Void Review
2 CommentsPosted by Matt on January 30, 2010 under Reviews
Dark Void is the new third person shooter from Capcom that introduces gamers to the idea of vertical combat. It's an interesting concept and one that has a lot of potential, but is Dark Void able to pull it off successfully? Or does it just become a messy nauseating trip? Read our Dark Void review to find out. The game centers around William Grey, a pilot who crashes in the Bermuda Triangle... more.
Army of Two: The 40th Day Review
0 CommentsPosted by Matt on January 26, 2010 under Reviews
Army of Two was one of my favorite games when it came out. The online was forgettable, but the campaign, especially when played in co-op, was one of the best campaigns I had played all year. I had high hopes for Army of Two: The 40th Day; so the question is, is the sequel just a cash grab or does it actually build and expand on the franchise and is it worthy of being a sequel? Read our Army of Tw... more.

Borderlands is the new FPS/RPG mashup from developers Gearbox. The game had a lot of hype surrounding it, mixing two genres usually results in failure, but Borderlands was hyped as the game that could pull it off. Has Gearbox succeeded in creating a innovative and engaging hybrid game or is this just another Fallout 3 wannabe? Check out our Borderlands review to find out. Borderlands is set on ... more.
Zombie Island of Dr. Ned Review
0 CommentsPosted by Matt on December 18, 2009 under Reviews
The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is the first piece of DLC for Borderlands, the new FPS/RPG from Gearbox. Retailing for about $10, the DLC provides an entire new area with new enemies, new characters, new quests and a new plotline. To be quite honest, I found the DLC to be more enjoyable than many parts of the actual main game, and in this review of Zombie Island of Dr. Ned I’m going to tell you why... more.
Assassin’s Creed 2 Review

Some people thought the first Assassin’s Creed was bad. They said it was boring, repetitive, jumbled story, to long etc. Well I got news for you, you ain’t seen anything yet. Assassin’s Creed II is far worse and at times it got so bad I just shut off my 360 mid game, I just couldn’t play it. Now before you go and call me a hater of the franchise I’ll tell you that I loved the first ga... more.

Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! Review
2 CommentsPosted by Matt on November 27, 2009 under Reviews
It’s not often that a sequel takes a step backwards. Sure sometimes sequels are worse than the original but it’s rare when the sequel is actually a step down from the previous title in the series. Somehow, Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! actually manages to do this. Coming off the awesome Scene It Box Office Smash, I was really looking forward to the third installment in the series,... more.
DJ Hero Review

The ever growing trend of including peripherals in video games continues with the latest peripheral based game, DJ Hero. In a genre that is becoming quite crowded is there room for another music game, are people sick and tried of the plastic instruments, or is DJ Hero the right mix of fun and uniqueness that will solidify its position in the genre. DJ Hero puts you in the role of a DJ, the game... more.

Take A Look At Chris Unarmed

About a week ago a game called Chris Unarmed caught my eye. It's an upcoming Indie Game and it looks pretty neat. It's a 2D Platformer and it looks like it could be a hidden gem. Here is the recently released trailer and below are some screenshots. Every once in a while I like to draw attention to some of the upcoming indie games because some times they're really good but unfortunate... more.
South Park: Let’s Go Tower Defense Play Review
1 CommentsPosted by Matt on October 16, 2009 under Reviews
South Park has finally arrived in video game form on the XBOX 360. Instead of giving us an original and exciting game they take the route of the “tower defense” style of gameplay. The story is almost non-existent and the gameplay doesn't bring anything unique to the table. Essentially South Park is being invaded and you have to step up and save the town before it’s too late and like the t... more.
Brutal Legend Review
4 CommentsPosted by Matt on October 13, 2009 under Reviews
Originality is not something that is found very often in games today. When you do stumble across it, it’s always nice to see. Brutal Legend is a pretty original title, maybe not so much in the actual gameplay mechanics, but in the actual story, setting and overall tone, originality is abundant. The story of Brutal Legend is quite frankly completely absurd. It’s wacky, strange and really out... more.

Tales Of Monkey Island Chapter 3: Lair of the Leviathan Review
0 CommentsPosted by Matt on October 2, 2009 under Articles & News, Reviews
The third chapter of Tales of Monkey Island is now available for gamers everywhere. With three episodes in just a few months is Telltale rushing out the episodes? Is it becoming too much? Or is Chapter 3 a worthwhile episode in this ever growing series? I hate to say it but the third chapter in this epic tale is the worst. The first two were exceptionally good but this one seems to fall short i... more.
